It’s official, Nick Gordon will appear on the Dr. Phil Show alongside his mother (yes… he actually has one!)
Dr. Phil posted the photo above via Instagram yesterday, somewhat confirming rumors that Gordon would appear on the show,
However, since Gordon is currently under investigation by the Roswell police department, it’s his Mother who will be doing most of the talking.
Coincidentally, as Bobbi Kristina Brown remains in a coma, Gordon has posted a slew of ‘suicidal’ tweets in the past few days so now his Mom plans to stage an ‘intervention’ on the popular talk show.

More details below…
Just last week, Nick Gordon decided to issue a very public plea to see his lady love in the hospital (click HERE if you missed that).
Bobby Brown responded and revealed that Nick had been refusing to cooperate with investigators and all he wanted was for Gordon to speak to authorities about the events that led up to Bobby Kristina’s hospitalization.
Somewhere between all of that back & forth drama, Nick got a publicist (insert side-eye). So the ‘death threats’ turned inward and Nick changed the tunes of his tweets…
He even slid in a public think you to his new publicist…
[Sidebar: We see what you did there Nick… ]
The publicist secured the Dr. Phil interview which I assume will be more focused on Nick’s mom and why she wasn’t in his life.
Nick’s mother is named Michelle (great name by the way), and she’s been flying under the radar while Nick has been living with the Houston’s since his teens. She reveals on the show:
As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance. When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, ‘Mom, why couldn’t I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs.’
He won’t let go of the guilt.
(Hollywood, CA – March 5, 2015) – In a national television exclusive, Dr. Phil conducts an emotionally charged intervention with Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, offering Gordon the treatment he appears to so desperately need as he battles drug and alcohol addiction.
With his mother Michelle at his side, Gordon expresses the severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering since Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in January and over the tragic loss of Whitney Houston three years ago. Will he accept Dr. Phil’s offer for help?
The dramatic episode airs Wednesday, March 11th (Check local listings).
So I guess they’ll be talking more about Nick’s mom’s struggles than his own. Chile… I guess. He also has an older brother. I wonder if he’ll be on the show as well?
**UPDATE** FYI… TMZ is reporting that since the taping, Nick has checked in to a rehab facility. *sigh*
Nick Gordon checked into rehab for drugs after ranting he might kill himself during a taped appearance with Dr. Phil.
Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend sat down with Dr. Phil in Atlanta earlier this week for what he thought would be an interview — but we’re told it was more like an intervention organized by Phil and Gordon’s mother.
During the taping, Gordon talked about committing suicide if Bobbi Kristina didn’t pull out of the coma. We’re told Gordon’s mother complained her son was severely depressed and abusing drugs.
It’s unclear where Gordon is getting treatment and for how long
[Sidebar: That publicist should get a huge bonus is this all works out. 😯 ]
What do you think of this recent occurrence in the ongoing Bobbi Kristina saga?
